Quote:I think killing Rick, a father and leader of the group would bring them into control. Killing the others I mentioned due to them being dangerous (and Michonne will appear dangerous if the rape etc happened, so she too would be killed).
I disagree because the group is fiercely loyal to Rick. That loyalty would lead them to avenge his death (well, at least try). If Rick was more like Negan and they only followed him out of fear, then Negan would have taken him out. Breaking Rick is the only option because they're still going to follow his lead.
Quote:There would then be a group traumatised by death and sexual violence. However it is a group that appears to be very capable, but would be firmly under heel, plus it allows some of Negan's men some entertainment.
Quote:The only issue would be would if rape weakened Negan's moral authority. Hoever, after last night I don't think that's the case.
